Hello Sherwood Families,

Thank you for another fantastic week at Sherwood! We are excited to share all of the amazing things your students have been learning at conferences next week. Our parent/teacher conferences will take place via Zoom or over the phone on Monday and Tuesday between 12-8pm.

Thank you for signing up, connecting with our amazing staff, and partnering with us as we work to provide each of our pandas with the best educational experience possible!

We are so grateful for your dedication to creating an incredible Sherwood community beyond the walls of our school.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

A Message From Sherwood PTO: Day of Giving

We are very excited to be participating in D112's Day of Giving this year. With the holidays quickly approaching, there are many in our community that continue to feel the effects of the past year or so in various ways. In the spirit of being “Stronger Together,” we have the opportunity to take that burden away during this holiday season to allow families to focus on what truly matters—each other.

The goal of the Day of Giving is to assist approximately 600 people in 150 families throughout the Highland Park and Highwood communities. And we, at Sherwood, are invited to participate! The Sherwood PTO has pledged to provide 100 bags of rice towards this overall goal. If you would like to contribute, drop offs are due to Sherwood by Friday, December 3rd. There will be a donation box located in the front office for your convenience.


Thank you for your consideration and Happy Holidays!
